Compliance Management at Huawei

  • We have a Chief Compliance Officer (CCO) to centrally manage the company’s operational compliance. The CCO reports to the Board of Directors. Every business department and subsidiary of our company has also appointed a compliance officer and set up their own compliance teams, taking responsibility for the management of their own operational compliance work.
  • We identify and assess risk with reference to applicable laws and regulations and business scenarios. On top of this, we have set compliance objectives, developed control measures, and incorporated them into all of our business activities and processes. This ensures effective compliance management and oversight in each business link. Huawei also conducts checks and audits to verify the effectiveness of our compliance management system and continuously optimize the system through root cause analysis and targeted corrective action.
  • We attach great importance to and continuously raise the compliance awareness and capabilities of our employees. Through training, publicity, assessments,disciplinary action, and more we push employees to fully understand both the company’s and their own responsibilities and obligations to ensure compliance and incorporate that  understanding into their behavior.
  • With an open mind, we proactively work with customers, partners, regulators, and other stakeholders on compliance, and communicate our compliance principles and practices to them to constantly enhance mutual understanding and trust.
